Kabul, AfghanistanSuicide bombers coordinated with each other to conduct attacks near the National Directorate of Security, or the primary intelligence arm of the Afghan government. 25 were reported killed, though some estimates say the number was higher. Approximately 45 people were also wounded.

ISIS-K (the ISIS branch operating in Afghanistan) has claimed responsibility for the attacks online.

The bombings were not simultaneous. First, one suicide bomber detonated himself near the building while he was on a motorcycle. Emergency personnel, bystanders and journalists rushed to the scene to aid and document the attack. That’s when the second suicide bomber moved to the crowd and detonated himself as well.

Four of the dead were police officers and nine were journalists. This makes it the deadliest attack on journalists in Afghanistan since the beginning of the war in Afghanistan in 2001.
